The XC90 has long held the title of Volvo's SUV flagship, but a usurper is set to rise: the new fully electric 2024 Volvo EX90. It embodies the XC90's general principles of safety, space and Scandinavian luxury but adds a new all-electric powertrain to the mix. While the XC90 will be sold alongside it for the foreseeable future, the EX90 sets the tone for what we can expect from Volvo in the coming years.
With three rows of seats and a targeted range of over 300 miles, the EX90 will take on a growing list of competitors, including the well-established Tesla Model X and more recent additions such as the Mercedes-Benz EQS SUV and Rivian R1S.
The Volvo EX90 will be on sale here in the States toward the beginning of next year, and Volvo says it will come well equipped at under $80,000. We assume that means it will start around $78,000 and have a number of standard niceties but save a few swanky options like a Bowers & Wilkins stereo system for upper-tier models. When it does finally enter production, the EX90 will be built at Volvo's plant in Ridgeville, South Carolina, making it (potentially) eligible for government tax credits.
